The Clore Social Leadership Programme has appointed 17 new fellows for 2012.

The programme was established in 2008 to improve the quality of leadership in the third sector.

Each fellow will design his or her leadership programme and then receive intensive training, coaching and mentoring to help them achieve their goals. They will also take part in a one-week residential course.

Some will study full-time for one year; others will complete the programme on a part-time basis over two years.

The latest intake, which includes Anand Shukla, chief executive of the Daycare Trust, Ruth Scott, director of policy and campaigns at Scope, and Susan Murray, assistant director of public affairs at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, brings the total number of fellows since the programme began to 47.

"Social purpose organisations need confident, capable and innovative leadership," said Dame Mary Marsh, founding director of the programme. "There could not be a more significant time to ensure that we secure this."

The Clore Duffield Foundation is contributing £2m for the first four years of the programme.

Other funders for 2012 include the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Monument Trust, Nesta and the Pears Foundation.
